Windows 10 reached users in Summer of 2015 as an improved version of Windows 8.1 with many changes in both performance and stability and usability. Microsoft wanted to turn its latest operating system into a system in continuous development, releasing feature updates twice a year.

Following the release of the first version of the operating system, Microsoft released the first major update of the operating system, called " November Update ", 4 months later, in November 2015. In August 2016 came another version of the operating system, the anniversary update or Anniversary Update .

Last year Microsoft released in April and November 2018 respectively the updates April 2018 Update and October 2018 Update , which until two weeks ago were two Latest versions of Windows.

Today, the latest version of Windows 10 is the May 2019 Update , version of Windows released a couple of weeks ago and now available for all users for free.

Windows 8.1

Windows 8.1 arrived as a necessary update after the failure of Windows 8, one of the worst versions of the operating system. Windows 8.1 brought numerous improvements in performance and, overeverything, usability, an update that has gone unnoticed by many users but, without a doubt, has shaped Windows 10.

Although versions of Windows 8.1 Update 3 , these versions are actually false, since Update 3 only reached the RT edition of Windows 8.1.

The latest version of Windows 8.1 is Update 2 with all the patches and updates that we will receive through Windows Update.

Windows 7

The latest version of Windows 7 is Service Pack 1 Service packs are packages of updates that come with everything you need to update our system for updates and other stability or performance problems quickly and easily. In addition, these SPs usually bring some news and minor improvements to the system.

Windows 7 SP1 reached users in 2011 and, since then, we have not seen a Service Pack 2 despite the large amount of users who have requested it from the company.

To have the latest version of Windows 7, what we need to do is make sure we have Service Pack 1 installed (something that we probably already have) and, in addition, download and install the latest updates from Windows Update.

So we will have the latest version of Windows 7.

What is the latest version of Windows 10?

If we want to have our computer updated to the latest version we must make sure we have Windows 10 version 1903 installed on our computer, also known as the May 2019 Update.

To date, this It is the latest version of Windows, an update that has arrived full of changes, news and, in addition, with very few problems of i ncompatibility, so it is expected that in a short time it will become the version of the most used operating system.

To check the version that we have installed of Windows, we must simply run in the Cortana search box on “winver” command and we can see the version installed in the window that will appear.

Depending on the version that appears here we can know if we have the latest May 2019 Update installed or we are using an earlier version, in which case we would have to think about updating Windows as soon as possible to have the latest features and security.
